I agree with Beth....it's a hummingbird moth. They're fun to watch.

You got amazing shots!

You got some great photos of this hummingbird moth. They flit about so fast that I can't capture them.

Those are some great shots of the moth, Amy.

Kathy said...

Yep, it's a hummingbird moth. Almost as cute as their namesakes.

Rose said...

Oh, Amy, I think these are some of the best shots I have ever seen of them. If I remember correctly these things will bite if you try to mess with them too much...when I was a kid we messed with them...my nephew got bit.

Awesome macro shots, Amy! Great detail and color captures.

A Hummingbird Moth, that is new to me.
